Burt Process • Walk For Water
Inspired by the burden that millions of women and children bear every day walking an average of 3.5 miles to collect water that’s not safe, we walk together to raise awareness. Proceeds from our Walk for Water will help end the global water crisis and save countless lives. Learn more about how Burt Process is working to help end the Global Water Crisis.

100 Overlook Drive, Hamden CT Burt Process Headquarters
Our Walk for Water is approximately 2.5 miles and is designed to simulate what children in remote villages have to do every day to gather water for their families. The route will be along the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail. A short ceremony at our Burt Process facility will kick off the walk at 9 am. Participants will then be shuttled to the Farmington Canal parking lot on Sherman Ave, where we will begin walking south on the trail. At the halfway point, walkers will have the opportunity to quench their thirst from water coolers before filling their buckets with non-potable water. It will be up to the discretion of the walker as to how much water they will carry, so no need to be concerned about the weight of the bucket for you or your child. We will carry our buckets back to the parking lot and dump the water before being shuttled back to Burt Process. The event will conclude at our facility with refreshments, family-friendly activities, and a short closing ceremony.
Why Walk for Water?
Walk in honor of those who walk to collect water every single day.
Walk to raise awareness of the global water crisis and funds that support solutions.
Walk so that one day everyone will have safe water close to home.
All proceeds from this walk will be donated to Water Mission.
Burt Process and Water Mission work together to provide water treatment systems to assist in remote communities and disaster relief areas. We share our vast pool of engineering expertise and innovative technology to design and manufacture portable, cost-effective, and highly efficient water treatment systems.
The first annual Burt Process Walk for Water held on October 26, 2019, raised $10,000 for Water Mission, a non-profit organization that provides engineered water solutions to remote communities and disaster relief regions who are in desperate need of clean water.
Our main goal of working with Water Mission is to increase the access to safe water and sanitation solutions. Building a system and completing a successful project aside from basic health provides time for more progressive work, optimized education, improved health and increased productivity throughout the community.
Our donation directly supported Water Mission’s team in Kenya as they responded to the West Pokot landslide disaster that occurred late November 2019. This catastrophe had displaced 80,000 people and tragically took the lives of 50. Water Mission's team was able to make a well-timed response to the situation and quickly provide supplies, hygiene kits, safe water, and other necessities that are essential to life needed by the families and communities that were left in distress.
